I knew it was coming, so I already started. This weekend I cut out a raglan scoop-neck tee, altered it a bit from the original tracing (thanks, Rae!) which I traced from a tracing Rae made and altered for herself from an existing tee. (telephone game, anyone?)
I love sewing with knits, but this one was a little “too stable” for my liking. It barely stretches, which looks fine when it’s on, and was much easier to sew, but getting it in place on my body is a squeezy challenge, as I usually allow the stretch of the knit fabric to take care of the FBA for me. Oh well. It’s cotton and bamboo, and I left the edges raw, like I do on my kids’ shirts. I’m probably going to make 10 of these before I make anything else for myself.
p.s. I know my hair is pink and purple…Yes, Mom, I did that on purpose.
